I mixed up a bucket of Black MX Dye...


I over-dyed light hand dyes

and I dyed white fabrics

Gorgeous fabric!!! With as much time and materials it takes to create hand-dyes, it is easy to see why they are so expensive when you buy them. It makes it all the sweeter to have fun doing it with friends and create your own beauties!!
